"The History of Afternoon Tea"
This time, we’re recommending no frills, no dress up. Sue and Graham Tapp do an exceptional Afternoon Tea the Cornish would be proud of. A quant and quiet spot in Baldock, Hertfordshire, the Tapps are baking masterminds, serving up some of the best home-made treats we’ve ever had (seriously, we can’t get our heads round the chocolate orange marble loaf). Oh, and they have pretty good taste in teas too.. come here for an afternoon delight, with a cup of our very own loose leaf tea.

Since opening two years ago, Tea at Tapps in Baldock has become very popular, thanks to the owner’s attention to detail and quality of ingredients – cakes and scones are homemade from quality ingredients such as free range eggs and butter. There is a choice of 12 loose leaf teas, many of which have won a Great Taste Award. Try the Rosebud Gong Fu – the perfect accompaniment to a delicious cream tea.

Teas are loose-leaf, coffee is strong at the atmosphere is relaxed.
